Starting Small

Lately, I've really been obsessed about getting back into sewing. Maybe it's because I spent a fortune fixing my beloved Pfaff that my mother bought me when I was in high school and I want to use it. Or maybe, I just need yet another creative outlet to channel all my extra energy built up from going back to the gym four weeks ago. Anyhow, whatever that's possessing me to put my needles and yarn down to take on another crafty pursuit, here's my first small completed project to help me get back into the sewing groove--a reversible fabric headband. I followed a fantastic tutorial by Kate of KC Quilts and was fairly happy with the end result, but would probably make the headband next time just slightly narrower (by 1 cm) to suit my head shape. I chose a cotton cherry blosssom print for one side of the headband and a chocolate linen for the other, both from my small fabric stash. I'll try this headband again, but I'm already onto the Artsy Clutch from Amy Karol's bend-the-rules sewing book.

Those are so gorgeous! And congratulations on the twins. I'm just starting to pull my head out of the gutter of first trimester pregnancy and spring is just around the corner (except what's with the snow today?) and so it would be fun to get together with the kids one of these days. How's your hubby?
